Payroll tax

Payroll tax is payable by an employer in the ACT if its total taxable wages, or the total taxable wages of the group that it belongs to, exceed the threshold.

The ACT Treasurer announced in the 2014-15 Budget that from 1 July 2014, the payroll tax threshold would increase to $1.85 million. The ACT Treasurer has also announced that the 'genuine employer' exemption for employment agents will be abolished with effect from 1 October 2014.
